His arguments are that
- Anything that can be compiled can be compiled into asm.js
- Asm.js has basically become the universal runtime
All this lead to interesting consequences
- Nobody uses binaries any more, everything is asm.js
- The windowing systems of old have been ported to the DOM
- Deployments are as simple as a push
- Overall developer happiness has increased
Very entertaining talk about some of Ruby‘s quirks. 😀
A very profound interview.
During PyCon 2014 Erik Rose gave a very insightful talk about dos and don’ts of designing APIs. Towards the end he “gets meta” and groups all his points into categories drawing connections how different design goals influence each other. You see two main groups–”lingual” and “mathematical”–and he closes with this gem: 😀
This spotlights something that programming languages have over ordinary human languages. Programs are alive! They not only mean things when people read them, but they actually do things when run. So, very literally a program with carefully chosen symbols is poetry in motion.

Scott Meyers’ hilarious talk about C++ idiosyncrasies. 😀
There are no words to describe this talk, just watch it!
Or maybe there are … those of the presenter himself: “A bad programmer talks about bad programming.”
How this “cyber expert” embarrasses herself is priceless. I laughed so hard my stomach hurts. xD
